With over 350 seats the Drill Hall is one of the newly refurbished venues in Lincoln after a refit of over £2.6 million in 2003. The venue has a wide variety of performances including monthly highlight The Red Herring Comedy Club, an event has had secret appearances from Russell Howard in the past. Shows sell out quickly and the size of the venue is perfect for the shows they host.
